What you can learn.

  • Learn how self-portraiture operates as a creative critique of culture and community
  • Identify how feelings of belonging to larger groups operate in self-portraits
  • Incorporate personal milestones and everyday events into works of self-portrait
  • Read and discuss works by established writers

About this course:

Poets utilize the idea of Self-Portrait both creatively and critically as a means to explore their culture(s), histories and communities. A feeling of Belonging in a larger collective sense–those who make up the social fabric of your life– can inform and evolve one’s poetry. In this one-day workshop, we explore the transformative power of poetry, which reveals larger truths stemming from everyday occurrences as well as significant milestones. We also read and discuss works by writers like Robin Coste Lewis, Deborah Paredez, and Ross Gay.
